Today turned out to be a great day here in Twin Bridges, its 56 degrees and sunny! With this break in the weather the bugs have gone into overdrive and and the Beav and Ruby are still in great shape. The Big Hole is still recovering from the rain we had but is steadily dropping from 3700 cfs. make sure to have some parachute Adams and a couple BWO emerges before you head out! Cheers
After yesterdays warm weather causing a little snow melt and this mornings rain storm the Big hole bumped up to about 3,000 cfs but the ruby is still at 54cfs and the beav is at a steady 176 cfs. Worms and a blonde Pats Rubber leg is doing the trick right now on the Big Hole, but if you're on the Beav or the Ruby fishing smaller flies like a flashback Pheasant tail, a small psycho may or scuds should get the job done. Before you go out make sure your waders are dry if you are coming from out of state! Cheers!
Today is looking to be another great day in south west Montana today!! Our rivers are loving this weather, the Big Hole is at a happy 1540 cfs after a little bump of water, but the Beav (Beaverhead) is still at 175 cfs along with the Ruby at 54 cfs. Fish are definitely starting to look up after what I witnessed last night! The streamer fishing has been slow with this sun shining but the dry fly bite makes up for that. Nymphing when the fish aren't rising is your best bet right now, throwing smaller pheasant tails and stones. Fishing picks up mid morning (10:00-12:00) but slows down afterwards, although the fish are still eating all day! Big fish are on the prowl so make sure your knots are wet and your buddy (or yourself) has the net ready! Cheers!
The sun is shining here in Twin Bridges and the bugs are liking it! With a little bit of rain in the forecast for this weekend now is the time to get out and enjoy this awesome weather we are having! Rivers are still in very good shape and the fishing is getting exponentially better as the days go by! Looks like I'm going fishing this evening, and I hope you are too! If you're getting out tonight don't forget your floatant, and a buddy! See you on the water
Fishing has been pretty slow this past week, but the fish still have to eat! Dead drifting streamers, deep is a very good option if you don't want to nymph little Baetis, worms, midges or the good 'ole Pats Rubber Leg! Keep an eye out for the blue winged olives (BWO) and midges flying around later in the day, The dry fly bite in the evening has been picking up! With the weather getting progressively better after a rainy week, so will the fishing! Weather for the next week looks super fishy, and the rivers are in good shape with the Big Hole is running at 1,320 CFS and steadily dropping, the Beaver Head is sitting at a nice 175 CFS but a little dirty, and the Ruby is at a perfect 54 CFS and clear, make sure to double check your knots and leader from the last time you [...]
